Helmets are an item which can be worn on the head to protect it from injuries when getting in an accident. All helmets attempt to protect the user's head by absorbing mechanical energy and protecting against penetration. Their structure and protective capacity are altered in high-energy impacts. Beside their energy-absorption capability, their volume and weight are also important issues, since higher volume and weight increase the injury risk for the user's head and neck.
Some helmets have other protective elements attached to them, such as a face visor, goggles, face cage, and ear plugs. The type of accessories being used on your particular helmet will depend on the application of the helmet. For example, racecar driver helmets are different than motorcycle helmets because motorcyclists will usually use visors to keep bugs out of their face.
Helmets can be made out of a wide range of materials which include metals, plastics, leather, and even some fibrous materials such as Kevlar. Most modern helmets incorporate many of these material all in one to get the perfect balance between weight and strength. The benefits of using helmets(especially in vehicles) is so great that most racing tracks and leagues require one to be worn then driving a high powers vehicle.
